Blepharoplasty – A Complete Overview Of The Procedure


Blepharoplasty in Dubai involves the removal of fatty tissue beneath the upper eyelid. This surgical procedure is commonly used for cosmetic reasons. However, the procedure may have complications. It can result in tear trough deformity, lid retraction, and relative depression in the upper and lower eyelid midface areas. Fortunately, there are several ways to minimize the risks of this procedure.

Incision sites:

Blepharoplasty surgery is an outpatient procedure that can be performed with general or local anesthesia. The surgeon will determine which type of anesthesia is best for your particular case during your initial consultation. There are two main incision sites for blepharoplasty: the upper and lower eyelids. Upper blepharoplasty is performed through a small incision in the upper eyelid crease, while lower blepharoplasty is performed through an incision in the lower eyelid crease.

The most common location for upper blepharoplasty incisions in the natural crease on the upper eyelid. This site is best for removing fat deposits and loose skin. The incision will be a thin line that is invisible when the eyes are closed.

Recovery time:

Blepharoplasty is usually a quick and relatively painless procedure. However, it is important to understand that recovery time can vary depending on several factors. Most patients will experience swelling and bruising around their eyes for two to four days after the procedure. The swelling will gradually go away over time, although residual bruising will be present for one to four weeks. After the surgery, a cold compress will help reduce swelling. Patients will also be encouraged to avoid activities that can dry their eyes or wear dark sunglasses outdoors.

Patients should keep their heads elevated during the first two weeks following blepharoplasty. This can be done by sleeping in a chair tilted 45 degrees or using a foam wedge under their head. They should also sleep with at least two pillows under their heads. This will prevent them from rolling onto their faces during the night. For even more support, consider using an airline pillow or a ‘husband’ pillow designed to support the head and arms.


The cost of blepharoplasty depends on the type of procedure performed and the location of the procedure. The cost of the procedure is typically higher on the coasts, where nearly half of all blepharoplasties are performed. This is because plastic surgery costs in coastal areas are higher than in other regions.
